One of the Business Community members caught the attention of many as he had a striking resemblance to a riot police officers, who was spotted in full police regalia during a previous protest.

Photos of the man were circulated widely on social media with many speculating that he was a Mungiki disguising as a police officer.

“I was born here in Kibra, I went to Lang’ata Road Primary School and I have been a resident here for a long time. I have done many businesses, including being one of the first people to start repairing computers here,” he said.

He rubbished claims that he is a police officer noting that he does not even resemble the man in the photos on social media.

“That guy is dark and I heard after all this talk started that he is from Embu or Kirinyaga,” Mwangi was quoted by the local daily.
